The third evening of the Homegrown journey begins at Bent Paddle Brewing with Four Mile Portage, appropriately enough. Those who missed the inaugural showing of the Homegrown
Music Video Festival can see the encore presentation at Zinema 2.
Much of the rest of Tuesday’s carousing happens in Canal Park. Amazing Grace Bakery & Café and Vikre Distillery host an assortment of acts starting on the early side, from the bluesy rock and roll of Bill Bastian to the “acoustic cat rock” of the Trash Cats.
Per tradition, the big show of the night takes place at the Sports Garden. The diverse programming will progress from the Django-style jazz of Sam Miltich and the Clearwater Hot Club to Woodblind’s sanguine ska stylings. Next come the Duluth Dolls with their playful and provocative blend of dance and theater.
Bluegrass band Black River Revue closes out the night at Grandma’s. Tim Leutgeub says the band is pumped to be playing on the Sports Garden stage, noting that one of the highlights of Homegrown is getting to play on a bill that showcases the diversity of the Duluth music scene.
Prøve Gallery offers a cozy alternative with hard rock, Americana, and hip-hop. Dubh Linn hosts a similarly diverse late night bill that transitions from old-time to avant-garde to hardcore.
